JP pbm

CVL Zuiho pulls into Batavia

yeah, I knew the Malay HQ could trace by land all the way up to India... if an HQ is supplied by land then, they don't need to worry about being in or near a supply-eligible port?

Message from Japanese:
I feel like no matter what I do, it will be the wrong thing... I've been having this Princess Bride conversation in my head...

"Now, a clever man would play card A because he would know that only a great fool would play card B. I am not a great fool, so I can clearly not play card B. But you must have known I was not a great fool, you would have counted on it, so I can clearly not play card A."

and so on... so, let's try this...

Kondo with South, so 7+1=8 activations

[17 army] to Tarakan (3/7 asp) (A)

7 9/3/2019 8:46:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message yeah, not a problem... I remember our games moving right along...

Do you have a standard initial ENM? Maybe we could do that and draw cards and I could be thinking about what to do for the turn until you're available?
6 9/3/2019 8:13:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Japanese Message Jeff,

How's it going? We haven't played in awhile, so who knows how this will turn out. I will accept that bid. I'm in a rut getting the same side in every game, but I like the USA.

I have a deadline looming at month end that will keep me pretty busy for a few weeks. Can I check in and start after the weekend of the 14th? I think we'll still have plenty of time to get through this.


5 9/2/2019 9:17:00 AM Jan-Apr 1942 Allies Message well, we meet again! I can guess how this will go :)

I'll bid 0 for Japan...

Once sides have been picked, I will follow up with an email that will include a template Vassal .vsav file which will have the 1942 scenario already setup. When you open the file for the first time, you will be required to pick the side you’ve selected.

Good luck.

1 9/1/2019 9:19:00 PM Jan-Apr 1942 Moderator Message Welcome to Round 3 of the 2018 BPA Empire of the Sun Tournament.

Reminder: The JP will draw using the Historical Opening Hand option and the Allies can choose to start with the Arcadia Conference card and must declare that choice before drawing.

Reporting results: The winner of the match should direct email the moderator with the game number, the bid, the winner and how victory was achieved (Political Will, A-Bomb, Japan Blockaded, Japan Conquered, Japan Survived)

Match will end on January 4th, 2019. Any match still going after that date will be adjudicated.
